Not sure if this is the right place to post this However I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.


I put a bunch of FLAC music files on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 edition) Tablet with the intent of playing them thru my Yamaha RX-V765 receiver.

I bought a monoprice Premium Dual RCA to 3.5mm stereo cable. Plugged it into the head phone jack on my tablet, and into the Audio 1 input on the receiver.

The problem is the volume is really low, I have to turn the receiver up to 0.0 to have normal listening volume, where it normally is between -20.0 to -25


What do I need to add to get the volume levels up? a separate amp, a preamp, a DAC? or what's the best way to go about listening to my music from my tablet thru my receiver.


Thanks Rick

I'm not positive about the tablets, but on the phones it usually requires rooting it and doing a volume hack mod.


Before I did that I'd try it via HDMI. It shouldn't be "volume controlled" at that point and I'd bet you get what you want. (plus video). You'll have to look around for what adapter works for your newer note.

Perhaps try a dock connector to HDMI adapter to keep audio in digital domain.


Or, can you try to stream over wireless to a BR player or game console?

I should have thought of this myself. I'll see if I can find an HDMI adaptor and we'll see what happens.


thanks

What you did SHOULD work just fine. Where'd you set the volume on the tablet?

Oops... I just checked the volume on the tablet, it was about 3/4, must have turned it down without realizing it. Made a pretty good difference, still not like just listening to a CD or the radio, but much better.
